From The Lavender Menace To Trans Misogyny

When the National Organization of Women had just been founded in 1969 Betty Friedan called for expelling lesbians from the organization calling them a Lavender Menace who would stand in the way of NOW achieving it’s goals. In her 1978 book Gyn/Ecology: The Metaethics of Radical Feminism Mary Daly called trans-women ‘Frankenstein’ while ignoring trans-men’s existence entirely. This to me is not progress. It is a formally excluded group deciding to exclude a even more marginalized group. This sort of crap happens all too often and I’m sick of it. We either liberate everyone or we’re all still trapped in a hierarchy of oppression.

A nasty little troll. Why should I post that drivel on Phrayngula? If your so brave do it yourself. There is no more evidence for your god than for any other god/goddess. You can';t all be right but you can all be wrong.

Now please be so kind to Fuck Off And Die

well, you're WRONG, you little sh*t

Dm, such a brilliant argument. You have no evidence or facts to back up your belief in your god. I am at least willing to change my mind if new evidence shows up, you are not.

You are a coward who hides behind a locked ID. Now go away, you are too boring to deal with further.
